(Solved)Adding a windows share

Postby boarder428 » Sun May 19, 2013 10:25 pm

I currently keep my music on a windows home server. (Currently looking into other options! possibly NAS) I can't seem to play any music on Lite 3.4 from my WHS. Is there a way to add the network folder to a library? I tried VLC and Ultimate Media player with no success.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils smbfs

Code: Select all
sudo mount.cifs //hostname/sharename ~/Music/sharename -o user=username


There is probably an option in the file manager to mount it as well.
For example on normal ubuntu:
Access Windows Home Server from an Ubuntu Computer on your Network

So this seemed to work until I rebooted. Is there someting I need to do to make the pc mount the share everytime it boots? The folder that was created seems to still be in place but it is empty now!

The command i used was
Code: Select all
sudo mount.cifs //BENDERSERVER1/Music ~/Music/WHS -o user=Corey"


which created a folder in my music called WHS which was showing the contents of the "Music" folder located on the server "BENDERSERVER1" There is also a password for the user account on the server which I believe it asked me for after running the command.

Not really. It's extremely easy to create a Linux Samba share. I'll do a guide soon.

So I have been considering changing my windows home server to a NAS box. It is old, and the ui is very slow and clunky and back up portion has not worked correctly for years so all I do is store media on it. Wondering if anybody has any suggestions that would play nice with windows and Linux. I have been looking at the free NAS software. I don't need or care about password protection or PC back up I just really want a simple file server system that supports raid so I have double back ups of my media. It currently has 3 drives and the capability to add 1 more

FreeNAS is great. And if you have adequate RAM like 8GB, ZFS will perform as it should. I run from a Corsair GTR 32GB flash drive on an older AMD Desktop. One point I'd like to make is that if you plan on doing larger file transfers, have preferably 2-1gig nic. Then set up static route on FreeNAS to your main machine. Very easy to do in the UI. ;)
